Colour party and grenadier coy of the 63rd Ligne (apologies for the 'orrible flash)
Most of the French I made up and painted were Sash & Sabre - very nice figures from the US and a bit more affordable compared to Perrys. For the French I did up two battalions and a regimental colour guard. For the Brits (mainly Perry figures) I did a battalion of the Buffs. Note the Colour Party are S&S figures.
To finish off the project I did French 3rd Hussars - again mostly Perrys and some of the most beautiful figures I have ever seen. The officer is simply magnificent. Unfortunately my photography wasn't and I did not do a very good job of recording them before they were passed over to Doug and sold on - more's the pity.
3rd Hussars - elite coy & 3rd Hussars - charge! Officer figure is Perrys, the others are S&S
3rd Hussars, command
Well that's it for the 40mm - they've been sold on to a collector in the UK I believe. They are great figures and with attractive scaled up scenery, make for good skirmish games - just the economies of that scale that defeated us - couldn't afford both these AND the 28mm collection!
Anyway, hope viewers of this blog enjoyed my little trip down memory lane - just while I struggle to finish the Victrix Italians off.
A Happy New Year to all.
